Familiar composers open this performance with an elegant Handel trio-sonata with flute, viola, cello and piano and Schumann's impassioned Fantasiestücke for cello and piano. Then, the less frequently heard harmony of Trois Aquarelles for flute, cello and piano by Gaubert, a leading flautist of his era, and the blues-influenced Sonatine by Milhaud. Two 20th century works influenced by Slavic folk music round out the program: the Czech composer Martinu's Sonata for viola and piano and the Polish composer Lutoslawski's Bukoloki for viola and cello.
Performers are Susan Levitin, flute; Rose Ambrust, viola; Andrew Snow, cello; and Gerald Rizzer, piano.
A complimentary reception precedes the program.
Presented by the International House Global Voices Performing Arts Series and The Chicago Ensemble.
